They Said It:
“In nearly every area of campus, one has the opportunity to marvel at the expertise of Lauring Construction, who has continuously realized our ambitious vision to provide exemplary learning facilities. I am pleased and confident in the leadership of Lauring Construction as they embark on this new project – the second such in three years – to construct a new, state-of-the-art academic facility in which we will form future nurses and health care professionals who will not only treat ailments and illnesses, but will learn to understand and respect the dignity of the human person.”
